Great job.  How did you attach the ears? (is it a two piece hood, slits, or are they just sewn o nthe top?)

That is one cute puppy...

Thanks... I made slits for where i wanted the ears...

That is so cute!  Smiley

So, this is your first experience with lining? Any tips for those of us who have never tried?

Well, it's not my first time using lining... but it is my first time that it has been a great success...  I did my own thing instead of following instructions of others...  It helps to understand what you are doing instead of being lead blindly...

Not great at explaining things, but maybe this will help...  making a lining is like making a secong hoodie.  you make the outer part of the hoodie, aswell as the inner part of the lining completely (well nearly complete,,, dont do any finishes on the bottom of the jacket, don't hem the hood or sew on the zipper as yet... you can baste it on to the outer fabric as normal)

After you have made the outer fabric and the lining.... put the right sides together and pin together along the zipper and hood... it will make a nice long line to sew...

Flip the fabric over and you should have the start of a lined hoodie....  next pull the sleeves to the inside of the hoodie....  make sure the seams at the arm hole is aligned...  Now hem the end of the sleeve.  I made it easier by cuting the lining an inch to an inch and a quarter shorter... so that I'd have a guide to fold over the fabric and have a flushed straight line for the hem... (I always would mess up there)   Tuck under another 1/4 inch and sew....

After doing the sleeves... fold back over the hoodie so that you see the wrong sides of the fabric again....  pin together the bottom of the hoodie leaving a 5-6 inch space in the middle...  Sew together and flip the hoodie over pushing it through the space that you didnt sew... pin the unsewn area together and sew a straight line from end to end... and voila!! lined hoodie!!!

Yikes... i really do hope you understand this...

adorable!  did you use a pattern, or just make your own?

I did use a pattern but I altered it slightly to make it the way I wanted it...  I used Simplicity 5378  It has no lining, no ears, and the end of the sleeves was supposed to have elastic but I didn't bother putting it in...  that way I can turn the jacket sleeve up and it looks like a cuff or leave it down for length...

I have been itching to make a hoodie with dog-ears for my son and finally... I HAVE!!!  Never done something like this before... But it was surprisingly non-frustrating than usual.. Sewing was fun!!!  Since my serger isnt working I ended up having to line the whole thing... which I hardly ever do.. but I will more often now

Anywyas here's a shot of the hanger wearing it  Wink

Here is the lil puppy that I have had for a year now...

And here is a better shot of the hoodie...  It is a size 2 so he has loads of room to grow into it till it fits right  Grin

lol... I winged it...

basically just put a sheet of paper to his back and decided what was porportionate to his body and that it could hold atleast one book...  Didnt really want to make it too big otherwise more stuff might be stuffed in and its not good for a lil one to be carrying anything too heavy...

I also lined the inside with really light green checkered cotton, so that the seams dont go too quick from lil fingers trying to pull at any random strings...

iloveoctopus, goodluck... its really easy... not too much thinking to make it just remeber to measure the straps!!!

lol, oh yes he may look like it but he is actually running around he house looking for things to pull down and tear up!  The rath of Nicozilla!!!

Hey all... wanted to post up my lil project I have been working on today.  It is a library bag for my one year old son...  It is approximately 2/3 of a letter sized page.  Made it out of scraps that my sis left over 13 yrs ago...  

Messed up on the length of the straps but I think it came out quite well anyways... I put a snap onto the lengthened piece of strap, which if the strap ever gets too small to slip on and off you can always just snap the lil one in!! lol  Grin

Put on a few embroidered appliques and voila!!  SImple and plain became kid freindly  Shocked

*update* This is him trying it on this morning
